River Phoenix's Final Film, 'Dark Blood,' Completed
It has been exactly 19 years since the death of actor River Phoenix, 23, when he collapsed outside Johnny Depp's Los Angeles club, the Viper Room, in the early morning of October 31, 1993, and now the last movie he was filming, Dark Blood, has finally been finished almost two decades later.
When Phoenix died, he was almost 80% finished filming Dark Blood by director George Sluizer, who shelved the film after Phoenix's death due to his pivotal role, only to later rescue it from being destroyed by the studio many years later.
Phoenix plays Boy, a young widower and hermit living on a nuclear testing site in the desert who encounters and abducts a Hollywood couple who are traveling through. "Phoenix exerts a suitably charismatic and commanding air in his final role, making Boy a complex, fully mature character," says Varity.
No official word yet on when Dark Blood, also starring Jonathan Pryce, Judy Davis and Karen Black, will be released in the U.S.
